But Qt works on even Windows 95 so there must be some alternative to
GetGlyhIndices we could use. I don't mind if we depend on Winsock 2 but it
would be nice if we could get the font stuff to work on Windows 9x as well.
A quick look through the Platform SDK shows up GetCharacterPlacement as a
possible alternative for GetGlyphIndices on these platforms.
